Armani Si Intense* is an enhanced version of the original Si perfume. It’s a sophisticated, complex aroma that I absolutely love. I initially thought it’d be too heady for me. The first spray is quite strong but it settles down beautifully.
Armani Si Intense* is a grown-up fruity fragrance with top notes of cassis and blackcurrant, with bergamot, mandarin, and freesia. There’s also rose, neroli and patchouli rounded off with deep woody notes. A modern chypre fragrance.
Do you know what chypre means? Because I didn’t until I started looking into different notes and characteristics of perfumes. Apparently the term can be dated back to Francois Coty who created a scent called Chypre which contained fragrances largely from Mediterranean countries. The scent of these types of perfumes are predominantly based around a contrast of fresh citrus with a deeper woody base.
It’s an undeniably feminine scent. Warm, powerful and sexy. It has an opulence that’s perfect for evening wear but to be honest life’s to short not to wear perfume as nice as this at anytime of the day.
One spray of this will give you a rich hit of perfume that I found lasts well throughout the day. Typically with perfume the smell changes and at the end of the day this becomes a much softer but still a sexy scent.
Armani Si Intense comes in a beautiful glass bottle designed in black and gold which further enhances the opulence of the perfume. This would make a wonderful Mothers’ Day present or a beautiful treat for yourself.
Armani Si Intense is available from House of Frasers.
